When CPU Fans Go Bad

... you see a BIOS ‘CPU Health’ status window that says:

     CPU Fan: 0 RPM
     CPU Temp: 60ºC

with the CPU Temp number rising roughly 1ºC every five seconds. (For reference, under normal conditions my CPU runs in the vicinity of 41-42ºC, with an occasional slight increase in really hot weather.)

Thank goodness $10 plus two or three days plus NewEgg equals ‘fixed’!
